Brewed with both wheat and barley malt, Loft delivers an uplifting zest, a taut hoppiness produced by Sterling and Liberty hops, and a mouth feel as big as the sky. Kaffir leaf is pitched in the kettle to create a pleasantly refreshing citric nose.

Kaffir is the leaf of a lime tree used primarily in Thai and Indian cuisines.

Full-flavored yet figure friendly – Loft weighs in at 118 calories per 12oz. serving. Loft pairs well with spicy Thai dishes, kite-flyin’ and backyard bocci ball. The name Loft pays tribute to alternative forms of energy like the wind power we use to operate our brewery. Loft Beer will be available in bottles and draft April through September.

Well, to be honest, it's mostly Fat Tire that I dislike. And, being in Colorado, it's a favorite at restaurants here. I'm more of a Pale Ale to IPA beer drinker.

I find it hard to believe you would be dissing a quality beer like Fat Tire. I mean, it's a pretty good beer- not the best, by all means, but still a pretty damn tasty beer.

Oh no, it's not the marketing. That's the last thing on my mind while consuming a nice beer. With Fat Tire, it's the malt. Far too much for me. Do they have a less malty beer? I look for a IBU around 35+

Quite honestly, the worst beer I've had is PBR. But, my point is, you drink enough PBR in a setting, and you'll forget about the taste.

When I was in college, we used to save money by buying a six or a twelver of premium beer, and then a case of shit beer. After so many beers, you didn't care how bad it tasted.

Sorry, it is a private eye played by Martin Mull on Arrested Development. He had these elaborate [and ridiculous] disguises, and when he'd hear his name, he'd leap out of hiding or take part of his disguise off and announce himself loudly.

Heh. Wouldn't be the first time I've predicted how someone would die:

1. Paternal Grandfather = hit by a car, circa 1976.
